The relevance of the problem stated in the article is due to the world experience shows that the development and well-being of the state at the same time largely depends on the development of local self-government, on its independence in solving local problems. Since Kazakhstan gained independence from the state, reforms have been carried out to promote the effective implementation of the local institution. It is also necessary to evaluate the experience of foreign countries in the development of local self-government. The experience of foreign countries in the development of local self-government allows us to conclude that when certain conditions are created, they can successfully adapt to the practice of local self-government in Kazakhstan. The purpose of the research is to reveal the essence of the key problems that, according to the author, make it difficult to effectively introduce the institution of local self-government into the social and political life. The theoretical basis of the research is the essence and structure analysis of localself-government. The author concludes that the lack of a decision on the choice of a holistic model of local self-government is the main problem of its development. The current model of local self-government in the Republic of Kazakhstan does not fit into any of the models of local self-government (Anglo-Saxon, continental, mixed). The practical significanceof the research lies in the use of theoretical ideas, proposals and conclusions by state bodies in the development of regulations aimed at improving local self-government in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
